After the big names are off the board in the NFL Draft, the biggest question may not be when Michael Sam will be picked, it may be whether Michael Sam will be picked at all. Despite being named the Defensive Player of the Year in the SEC, Samĺs underwhelming physical measurables and his lack of a defined role in defenses could prevent him from being the first openly gay player selected in the draft.

You mean they expect him to play football?

Isn't being gay enough for them?

Homophobes!

Maybe he’ll got down in history as the “first openly gay player” to not be selected in the draft. That’s “historical” too, isn’t it? LOL!

I predict he will get a job with one of the networks.

I think the NFL should offer the lgbt crowd some protest seating for the draft, should the inevitable occur. I suggest directly next to the NY Jets fans.

Lawsuit, lawsuit! I can’t believe these scouts would say such things, much less think them. Time to put the fascist hammer down on these...these pigs!

Sell the team, sell their homes, cars, and everything but their clothes. Ban them from the NFL altogether - no tickets, no tailgating, not even a hot dog.

Nothing less than poverty for these homophobes!

Which reminds me, what happened with Tim Tebow? Is he on a sports program, and if so, how’s he doing?

He’ll get a job with the networks, the NFL or the Black Caucus / White House. He’s got it made no matter what.

Not only historical but hysterical too. Surely Adam Silver must be upset.

If he doesn’t get picked by the later rounds, San Francisco will HAVE to pick him, otherwise the locals will make the Redskin controversy look tame, by comparison.

As far as linebackers go, he will not get drafted, but will get signed as an undrafted free agent.

Maybe we don’t want to say out loud, or too loud, but....

could it be that this guy is a marginal NFL player? And, in such case, no team will want to deal with the media circus that would surround him as the first openly homosexual player???

I think somebody would put up with the circus if he could make a major contribution. But if he’s one of these guys whose talents put him “on the bubble”, I can imagine many teams passing on him.

Then again, in today’s politically correct world, would such passing him up be considered homophobic???? Will the whole NFL find itself facing a backlash if no team takes him???

When the FLOTUS is away from the Whitehut, on vacation, maybe he can be sent in as a sub for a few plays?
